[Centos] RAID Card for CentOS 3 compatibility

CN Buy buy at nieto.net
Tue Dec 28 12:24:25 UTC 2004


Hi everybody,

I need to setup a couple of new servers with RAID 1 & another with RAID 5,
witch card will have built in support (no need for drivers). It can be for
ATA or SATA drives (any preference on ATA or SATA ?). 

I'm looking for a PCI card , or a motherboard with built in card.

I been looking at the :

1. "3ware 64-bit PCI to SATA RAID Controller Card, Model "Escalade
8006-2LP", can I plug this card in on a 32 bits PCI slot or it need to be a
64 bit one.

2. 3Ware 7006-2 2 Port ATA RAID

3. Also I came across this one (less pricy than the 3ware ) LSI PCI to ATA
RAID Controller Card, Model "MegaRAID ATA 133-2"

Finally I got a Tyan server that has a built in Raid card, (RAID bus
controller: Promise Technology, Inc. PDC20276) and the drivers are for the
RH 7,8. So when I run the drivers it tells me that is not compatible. Any
recommendation on how to make it work ?

I found this on the net : (will this work for the centos 3)

TIA
Carlos


If you have a Promise PDC 20276 IDE Controller (e.g. on board the Asus
A7V333 mainboard) and are wondering, why it doesn't work anymore with kernel
version 2.4.21 (though it had worked with 2.4.20):
Try recompiling your kernel not only with "PROMISE
PDC202{68|69|70|71|75|76|77} support" but also with "Special FastTrak
Feature" (CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE=y) enabled. 

/usr/src/linux-2.4.21/.config:
  [...]
  CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_NEW=y
  CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE=y
  CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX=y
  [...]
Oh, and, BTW:
There finally are official Linux drivers from Promise (at least for some
RedHat etc. versions). They can be found in section "FastTrack TX2000".

Subject: [Centos] GRUB bootloader

I have raid'd a copy of my system for backup purposes to another hard drive,
not deleting the MBR. When I boot with GRUB (Centos 3.3) it now lists
multiple instances to boot, but in fact there is only one complete system.
Is there a way to delete additional instances from the GRUB bootup screen?

Thanks, Beth

 Try adding the -r switch to the start command in your initscript for
syslog.  Then restart syslog and see if that helps.

Subject: Re: [Centos] Problem with change user

Hi,

I am also using ldap, and pam ldap module/
I had similar problems with su and oracle, several months ago. It
seems that some of the lovely pam libraries crashes. I turned out that
the problem is that I had manualy edited

            /etc/pam.d/system-auth=20

to include ldap pam module. The moment I used the relevant red hat
tool - authconfig to add support fot ldap passwords, my problems
disappeared. I noticed that system-auth file created by the redhat
tool is more complex by my previous variant which I took from a
similar debian box.
